I saw this box of wine at a local store and was intrigued. I am not particularly a fan of boxed wine. I prefer to open a bottle of wine the old fashioned way – with a corkscrew. That being said – the price was about $20 for approximately 4 bottles of wine (as advertised).
This wine is surprisingly drinkable. Very fruit forward and a bit light bodied for a cab. It has a smooth clean finish as there is not much in the way of tannins.
Overall it is easy drinking a good starter red for someone looking to “get into” cabs. I tasted it every night for a week. I noticed that after about 5 days it was starting to taste a bit off. In my opinion this wine does not keep for the 2-3 weeks advertised on many boxed wines.
GET IT for parties and barbeques. Not good for long term drinking/storage after opening.
